Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has announced the Halloween Digital and Blu-ray release dates. Having grossed $251 million worldwide on a budget of just $10 million, the film is arriving on Digital and via the digital movie app Movies Anywhere on December 28, 2018, as well as on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on January 15, 2019. The studio has also released a new deleted scene, which you can watch above!
Halloween takes place four decades after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) narrowly escaped the masked Michael Myers’ brutal killing spree. Packed with bonus features, including chilling deleted and extended scenes, as well as special featurettes showing behind-the-scenes looks at creating the film, Halloween delivers spine-chilling, hair-raising intensity and thrills to both new and repeat viewers.
Forty years after the events of 1978’s Halloween, Laurie Strode (Curtis) now lives in a heavily guarded home on the edge of Haddonfield, where she’s spent decades preparing for Michael’s potential return. After being locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when a bus transfer goes terribly wrong, leading to chaos in the same town he preyed on decades earlier. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the deranged killer returns for her and her family – but this time, she’s ready for him.
Master of horror John Carpenter (Halloween (1978), The Thing) joins forces with director David Gordon Green (Joe, Pineapple Express) and producers Jason Blum (Blumhouse), Malek Akkad (Trancas International Films) and Bill Block (Miramax) for this follow up to Carpenter’s 1978 classic horror film. The Halloween cast also includes Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and Virginia Gardner.
